Just to give some background - I am planning on writing my GMAT in may, and will begin studying in the second week of January. I am looking at a 1.5 hours a day during the week, and 4-5 hours a day on the weekends.

Working through some questions on the GMAT club, I have found that I am pretty well off on the verbal section, and struggle more with the Quant. This is mainly due to the fact that I have forgotten the most basic rules of arithmetic - (this has frustrated me to no end.)

My study plan is to begin with a basic math review. After this, I plan on taking the diagnostic test and then getting into the program. I will dedicate 2 weeks to each section, beginning with the MGMAT books in the first week, and solving questions in the OG and other books during the second.

Here is what currently sits in my Amazon cart. Please help me figure out what I need, and what is redundant: (I have already purchased the OG, Quant Review, Verbal Review from GMAC)

Foundations of GMAT Math - Manhattan GMAT; Paperback
VS
Kaplan GMAT Math Foundations - Kaplan; Paperback

I assume that getting both of these is redundant. In your experience, which would I be better off with?

Manhattan GMAT Complete Strategy Guide Set, 5th Edition - Manhattan GMAT; Paperback

Kaplan New GMAT Premier 2013 with 5 Online Practice Tests - Kaplan; Paperback

Kaplan GMAT Math Workbook - Kaplan; Paperback

Kaplan GMAT Verbal Workbook - Kaplan; Paperback

PowerScore GMAT Critical Reasoning Bible - David M. Killoran; Paperback

Total GMAT Math - Jeff Sackmann; Paperback

I guess my questions are: Is the Kaplan and Manhattan overkill? Is it worth buying both, if only for the questions? Are the Kaplan Math and Verbal workbooks unnecessary? Will I be able to work Kaplan GMAT 800, and Total GMAT Math into my study plan? Is there an essential book that I am missing?

If you are planning to us the MGMAT books, then get the MGMAT Math Foundations.
See where you stand and then get books as needed (chances are you won't need the others).

You can get the Kaplan Premier book just for the tests but that's optional really.
I would add to your list MGMAT Roadmap - it is a helpful neat book that tells you how to structure your studying best. If you study well, you probably don't need it but it does have some helpful wisdom that even I found useful.

Good Luck and Happy Holidays.
